Marcia Gay Harden Reveals Who 'Wasn't Happy' About Her Oscar Win

Marcia Gay Harden is getting candid about winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2001.

The actress won the award for her portrayal of Lee Krasner in the film Pollock, which she starred in alongside Ed Harris and Jennifer Connelly. The movie tells the story of American painter Jackson Pollock, based on the artist’s 1989 biography Jackson Pollock: An American Saga.

The other actresses up for the Oscar were Kate Hudson for Almost Famous, Frances McDormand for Almost Famous, Julie Walters for Billy Elliot and Judi Dench for Chocolat.

Marcia discussed her win in an interview with Vulture on Wednesday (April 7) and implied that there was a particular actress nominated in the same category who wasn’t thrilled that Marcia had won.

Marcia began by saying she was thrilled to have won the award, particularly since Pollock was considered an underdog.

“It just felt great,” she said. And by the way, I felt the girls were really happy for me as well. There was one I will not mention — but it wasn’t Kate — who seemingly wasn’t so happy.”

“And I’m friends with Frances McDormand. There you go,” Marcia continued. “Frances doesn’t give a s–t.”

She also ruled out Julie Walters, implying that it was Judi who was upset about Marcia‘s win.

“But I don’t want to say anything negative about anybody, honestly,” Marcia added. “It was my perception that somebody wasn’t so happy, but you never know what people have going on. Whatever.”

Judi recently made a major announcement about her career.
